Manuscripts and Archives holds millions of unpublished and published resources relevant to research on many subjects. We have created the guides available from this page to assist you in quickly identifying collections in our holdings by subject. The guides are not comprehensive; only the most relevant sources are included.
We have divided the guides into two tabs: Specific Subjects and Specific Yale Subjects. We've created separate Yale related subject guides to make them easier to identify and find. While the Specific Subjects guides list only collections found in our holdings, the Specific Yale Subjects guides also include resources found outside of Manuscripts and Archives, such as articles and websites.
Most of our holdings are not represented in any of the Subject Guides. See the Top Five Ways to Search Our Collections below for additional ways to search our holdings.
If you are new to Manuscripts and Archives, you will find the Using our Collections page helpful. It provides some tips for using our collections and links to our website, which has much more information.
